    September 5, 2021 - At age eight, this wine is still drinking nicely. Red and black fruit with slightly receding Christmas spice and wild herbs. Good depth and wonderful texture. The nose has tertiary characteristics. Time to drink up. Good juice.

    November 4, 2020 - Similar notes to my last tasting of about 1 yr ago. Reserved rich dark fruit, delicious and balanced. Improved over the next hour.

    October 16, 2020 - I generally love Black Chicken but this bottle left me disappointed. The fruit seems to be gone and all that is left is a bit of acid and tannin. Drinkable but not great.

    November 23, 2019 - This wine is finagling hitting on all cylinders. Dark fruit and Mediterranean spices lead the way in this well balanced Zinfandel. Everything is in the right place. Good juice.
